Snuggle up! Kurt Russell battles against the cold and a mysterious alien life-form in the John Carpenter version of The Thing.

A team of scientists working in the frozen landscape of the Antarctic encounter a shape-shifting and killer alien being after a strange dog enters the camp. This is, of course, after witnessing a Norwegian team chasing the dog to kill it but perish in a helicopter crash before they can and before they can explain. Isolated in a part of the world nearly as remote as space, Kurt Russell’s R.J. MacReady leads the charge for survival not just his team but for the entire human race. Overshadowed upon its release by the more family friendly film E.T., Carpenter’s The Thing is a terrifying look at outer space in our own world that combines brilliant special effects and humorously scary scenes to punctuate this contemporary version of The Thing from Another World.
